If the house was sold after 5 months subsequent to the death of the trustee, and the house was in the living trust could that 5 months considered as rental expenses for 1041 form purposes

  1. If the house was vacant, the costs to keep up the house until it was sold can be deducted on Form 1041 as costs of administration. If the house was rented, the expenses would be off set against the rental income for the same period.
